  • Judge orders Michigan mom 7 days in jail for not vaccinating her son

Rebecca Bredow, from a suburb of Detroit in MI, had initially agreed with her nine-year-old son's father that the child would be immunised. In a court hearing last fall, Bredow agreed to court orders that she would get the boy vaccinated.

On Wednesday, Bedrow went under the steady gaze of a judge to argue her case.

Bedrow had one week to get her 9-year-old son vaccinated, as indicated by a request by an Oakland County judge.

McDonald placed the boy in temporary custody of his dad.

Anti-vaccination advocates - or anti-vaxxers - believe that immunising children exposes them to harm, and could be linked to autism.

The disagreement over whether or not to vaccinate their son landed the case in court.

In Michigan, parents are allowed to avoid having their children immunized if it conflicts with their religious or personal beliefs.

A month ago, she said that she and her son's dad consented to space out and delay getting their son vaccinated.

The couple separated in 2008, according to ABC News, but they shared parental custody and the father still wanted the boy vaccinated.

She had one week to comply with a judge's order to get her child his shots, or she could go to jail.

Instagram has brought in a feature for its Stories which will most likely be widely used within a week of its implementation. The temporal nature of Instagram Stories (they're only viewable for 24 hours) makes pairing them with polls a smart idea.

Child immunisation rates in MI are also among the worst in the USA, ranking 43rd out of the 50 states, according to Mlive.

The federal government does not legislate child immunisation, only issuing recommendations while leaving requirements to states or local school districts. If she did not comply with the order, she would be thrown in jail.

Rebecca Bredow is scheduled to appear in court Wednesday to find out if she will be behind bars for standing by her decision to not get childhood shots for her son.

For that reason, many anti-vaccine parents choose to home-school their children, Mrs Fisher told the BBC.
